Make a Simple Contact Page in WordPress There are zillions of contact form plugins for wordpress. But they add unnecessary css and js files in all your wordpress posts where you need it only for one contact page. Here is a cool way to create a simple contact page in wordpress 3+ without using any plugin or hard to setup guide.

I have been using this for some time an this works the best for me. Why install a plugin or load extract scripts and css files when you can get it done in 5 simple steps.

Make a Simple Contact Us Page in WordPress

Step 1 : Download this contact.php (link) file. This is a custom made template for the contact form in php with a name "Contact Us").

Step 2 : Extract and Upload it your current theme’s folder (/wp-content/themes/ThemeName/)

Step 3 : Go to Dashboard > Pages > Add New to create a new page. Give it a proper name.

Step 4 : Select the "Contact Us" from Template option under Page Attributes. (see above)

Step 5 : Click Publish to save. You can see my contact page to get an idea.

Note : The emails are send to the admin email (the one you provided during wordpress install). You can edit the contact.php file to add further options, dropboxes etc, but I like the way it is. If you have some css defined for forms and submit button you can just add the css classes in the contact.php file before uploading.

I found this guide at emanueleferonato who explains this whole very easily. This way you can create other specific pages for your wordpress blog like archives, file uploader, promotions, landing pages, redirects etc.
